roasted peanuts, finely ground
1 1/4 cups
egg yolk, beaten
I've never had a Chinese peanut cookie before, so I'm not sure how they're suppose to taste. However, I made this recipe and did not like the cookies at all. They were way too sugary! The dough was very crumbly and I had a hard time keep the cookies from falling apart. They didn't turn golden even after being in the oven for 10 minutes. I would not make these again.
I think the recipe is too sweet. I slightly modified the recipe to one cup ground peanut and one cup flour and 3/4 cup sugar. I do like the soft melt in the mouth texture thanks to the corn flour. I also opt to brush it with egg yolk for better browning and bake it small like the store bought ones (about 3/4inch in diameter) and slightly flatten. Oh, I also add 1/2 tsp of salt. Omit corn flour is you prefer slightly firmer cookies.
